Voivod have named Dominic 'Rocky' Laroche as their touring bassist after the recent exit of the band's longtime bassist Blacky.
Voivod's long road supporting their 'Target Earth' album was just getting underway, but at least several dates on their run will not happen as scheduled. The band has announced a series of postponed dates while their frontman, Denis 'Snake' Belanger, undergoes a procedure to deal with diverticulitis.
Canadian heavy metal veterans Voivod are celebrating their 30th anniversary with a new album set for release on Jan. 22. What's that? You can't wait until the 22nd to hear the new record! Settle down, because we've got some great news for you; Voivod's thirteenth studio album, 'Target Earth,' is available for streaming in full exclusively here on Loudwire.
Back when Canadian progressive metal legends Voivod started in the early '80s, cell phones were in their infancy and smart phones were far in the future. 30 years later, Voivod is releasing a smart phone app along with a teaser of their upcoming single 'Mechanical Mind.' The band's 13th studio album 'Target Earth' is set to be released Jan. 22, 2013, in North America, marking Voivod's 30th anniversary.
